WL&R: chal ri sajni…

These songs say it all for themselves. Just watch, listen and read :)

The song this week is Chal ri sajni ab kya soche.. from the movie Bombai ka babu (1960) with lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and music by SD Burman, and a complicated plot starring Dev Anand and Suchitra Sen. The only song in the movie sung by Mukesh, this song  comes towards the end of the movie and captures the bidaai of Suchitra Sen from her home.

chal ri sajni, ab kya soche
kajra na beh jaaye rote rote

baabul pachhtaye haathon ko mal ke
kaahe diya pardes tukde ko dil ke
aansoon liye soch raha door khada re

mamta ka aanchal, gudiyon ka kangna
choti badi sakhiyan, ghar gali angna
choot gaya, choot gaya, choot gaya re

dulhan banake gori khadi hai
koi nahin apna kaisi ghadi hai
koi yahan, koi wahan, koi kahan re

Sun mere bandhu re…

While Sachin Dev Burman (SD Burman) composed songs in more than a hundred hindi movies, he only sang for a few. He came from a royal family but his songs were inspired by folk music. Never lip synced by any actor, they provided crucial context to the hidden emotions and thoughts of the actors featured in the song. These are my top five.

  • Sun mere bandhu re… from Sujatha (1959). Lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri.
sun mere bandhu re, sun mere mitawa, sun mere saathi re

hota tu peepal main, hoti amar lata teri (x2)
tere gale mala ban ke, padi muskaathi re, sun mere saathi re 
sun mere bandhu re, sun mere mitawa, sun mere saathi re

diya kahe tu sagar main, hoti teri nadiya (x2)
leher behar karti apne, piya mein jaati re, sun mere saathi re
sun mere bandhu re, sun mere mitawa, sun mere saathi re

  • O re maanjhi, mere sajan hain us paar... from Bandini (1963). Lyrics by Shailendra.
O re maanjhi, o re maanjhi, o mere maanjhi
mere sajan hain us paar, nainan maar hoon is paar 
o mere maanjhi ab ki baar, le chal paar, le chal paar  

man ki kitaab se tum mera naam hi mita dena 
gun to naa tha koi bhi awagun mere bhula dena
mujhe aaj ki bidaa ka marke bhi rehta intezar

mat khel jal jayegi kehti hai aag mere man ki 
main bandini piya ki main sangini hoon saajan ki 
mera kheenchti hai aanchal manameet teri hai pukar 

mere sajan hain us paar,o re maanjhi

  • Wahaan kaun hai tera… from Guide (1965). Lyrics by Shailendra.
wahaan kaun hai tera, musaafir, jayega kahaan 
dam lele ghadi bhar yeh chaiyaan payega kahan
wahaan kaun hai teraa 

beet gaye din, pyaar ke palchin, sapna banee woh raatein 
bhool gaye woh, tu bhi bhulade, pyaar ki woh mulakatein (x2)
sab door andhera, musafir, jayega kahaan 

koi bhi teri, raah na dekhe nain bichayen na koi 
dard se tere, koi na tadapa aankh kisi ki na royee (x2)
kahe kisko tu mera, musafir, jayega kahaan 

tune to sabko, raah batayi, tu apni manzil kyun bhoola
suljhake raaja, auron ki uljhan, kyun kachhe dhagon mein jhoola 
kyun naache sapera musafir jayega kahaan 

o musafir, tu jayega kahaan
kehte hain gyaani, duniya hai paani paani pe likhi likhayi 
hai sabki dekhi, hai sabki jaani haath kisike na aayi (x2) 
kuchh tera na mera,(x2) musafir jaayega kahaan

  • Safal hogi teri aradhana... from Aradhana (1969). Lyrics by Anand Bakshi.
kaahe ko roye chaahe jo hoye
safal hogi teri aradhana kaahe ko roye

diya toote to hai maati, jale to yeh jyoti bane (x2)
bahe aansoo to hai paani, ruke to yeh moti bane
yeh moti aankhon ki poonji hai ye na khoye
kaahe ko roye chaahe jo hoye
safal hogi teri aradhana kaahe ko roye  

sama jaaye is mein toofaan, jiya tera sagar samaan
nazar teri kaahe nadan, chhalak gayee gagar samaan 
jaane kyon tune yoon aansoon se nain bhigoye 
kaahe ko roye chaahe jo hoye
safal hogi teri aradhana kaahe ko roye   

kahin pe hai dukh ki chaya, kahin pe hai khushiyon ki dhoop
bura bhala jaisa bhi hai yahin to hai bagiya ka roop
phoolon se kaanton se maali ne haar piroye 
kaahe ko roye chaahe jo hoye
safal hogi teri aradhana kaahe ko roye

  • Doli mein bithaye ke from Amar Prem (1972). Lyrics by Anand Bakshi.  

“>

ho rama re, ho rama
doli mein bithai ke kahaar, laye mohe sajna ke dwaar
ho doli mein bithai ke kahaar
beete din khushiyon ke chaar, deke dukh man ko hajaar
ho doli mein bithai ke kahaar

marke nikalna tha (x2) ghar se sanwariya ke, jeeteji nikalna pada
phoolon jaise paon mein pad gaye yeh chhaale re, kanton pe jo chalna pada
patjhad ho ban gayi patjhad, ho ban gayi patjhad bairan bahaar
doli mein bithai ke kahaar

jitne hain aansoo meri (x2) ankhiyon mein utna, nadiya mein naahi re neer
ho likhne wale tune likh di yeh kaisi meri tooti naiya jaisi taqdeer
rootha maajhi ho maajhi, rootha maajhi ho maajhi re, 
rootha maajhi tooti patwaar
doli mein bithai ke kahaar

toota pehle yeh man (x2) ab choodiyaan tooti, hue saare sapne yun choor
kaisa hua dhokha maaya pawan ka jhonka, mit gaya mera sindoor
lut gayer ho raama lut gaye, ho raama mere lut gaye solah singaar
doli mein bithai ke kahaar, laye mohe sajna ke dwaar
ho doli mein bithai ke kahaar

 

WL&R: Jaayen to jaayen kahan

These songs say it all for themselves. Just watch, listen and read :)

The song this time is Jaayen to jaayen kahaan from the movie Taxi Driver (1954) with lyrics by Sahir Ludhianvi, and music by SD Burman. This was one of the earliest successes under the Navketan films banner. While many know of RK films, few know about this production house run by the Anand brothers (Dev, Chetan and Vijay) which brought out a lot of great movies like Baazi, Taxi Driver, Guide, and Jewel Thief.

Watch.

Dev Anand stars in this song (with Kalpana Kartik in the movie). Apparently they got married secretly during this movie (!).

Listen.

a Talat Mahmood classic.  Lata also sings the song in the movie – but nowhere close to this version.

jaayen to jaayen kahaan
samjhega kaun yahaan
dard bhare dil ki zubaan
jaayen to jaayen kahaan

maayusiyon ka majama hai jee mein
kya reh gaya hai iss zindagi mein
ruh mein gum, dil mein dhuaan
jaayen to jaayen kahaan 
dard bhare dil ki zubaan
jaayen to jaayen kahaan

unka bhi gum hai, apna bhi gum hai
ab dil ke bachneki, ummeed kam hai 
ek kashti hai, sau toofan
jaayen to jaayen kahaan 
dard bhare dil ki zubaan
jaayen to jaayen kahaan
